Location, location, location! Yes, we all know that “location” is probably top of your list when choosing your hotel on your next Arizona vacation. Luckily, Tempe Mission Palms is not only in the heart of Tempe, on the famous Mill Avenue, but also just steps away from downtown Phoenix & Mesa via the Metro Light Rail. The Mill and 3rd Street light rail stop is just across from our hotel, stopping to pick up passengers every 20-30 minutes, seven days a week.
For just the cost of a latte, you can ride the light rail for the entire day – stopping at great restaurants, shopping centers, and tourist attractions. Check out the Pizzeria Bianco, voted the #1 pizza in the country on the stop at Third Street/Washington, or get schooled on your wine knowledge at Cheuvront Restaurant and Wine Bar at the McDowell/Central Avenue station. Other downtown Phoenix stops allow for shopping at Cityscape, checking out a Diamondbacks Baseball game, or viewing an IMAX movie at the Arizona Science Center. Tempe & Mesa stops include the Tempe Improv, America’s Taco Shop, Marquee Theatre, and more.
The 20-mile stretch of the Metro Light Rail is also extremely useful for the business traveler, as it has a stop right near the Phoenix Convention Center and downtown ASU Campus, as well as many business offices in Phoenix, Tempe, and Mesa. No need to rent a car, as Tempe Mission Palms’ shuttle van will pick you up for free from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
So go ahead, book your next trip to Tempe Mission Palms, and know that you could not pick a better location to explore and enjoy!
